Our B&B Jacob22 is situated in a quiet pocket steps away from the core of Downtown Toronto at the cusp of Yorkville and Church Street Village. The splendid Victorian house overlooks shady Cawthra Park. Adjacent to the park the front steps lead into a 19th century town house with Victorian warmth and style. After your busy day you find a restful and comfortable retreat from the urban pace of Toronto. This trendy neighbourhood is only a block from Yonge Street the subway, minutes to Yorkville, the Eaton Centre, cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs and a plethora of stores and theatres. - Information by BedandBreakfast.com
Very narrow outside stairs to climb in the rain to get to our room when we arrived. Paid parking - down the street was the best we could find. Food poor. Attitudes of workers worse! Room never cleaned. Longer walk to the Market than we were told over the telephone when we were making our plans. Can't recommend to anyone!!!
Rooms clean and neat, but the step up to the bathroom is a safety concern at night. Breakfast times given were different depending on who was talking nad they were not as advertised. Owner disappeared. Left a bad taste in my mouth about Charleston as a whole. Hotel would have been better.
My friend and I planned this trip for a long time and are very happy we picked 1837. We loved our room with the beautiful canopy queen bed and the small, twin sleigh bed, perfect for friends traveling together. The porch wrapped around on all three floors, and it was nice for an afternoon drink or a quiet read. We thought the food was killer! Excellent coffee, too, and we love our coffee. Jane cooked the most delicious ham frittata with a mornay sauce and parmeson cheese. The next morning it was some kind of off-the-charts blueberry compote thing with a slice of baked pineapple, but you can opt for another dish if you prefer. In the afternoon, get ready for a delicious slice of home-made cake. We chose to visit the Magnolia Plantation and spent seven hours there. We liked the fact that there were trams and you didn't have to walk the entire way. Just beautiful with swamp tour, garden tour, house tour, slave cabins and an excellent lecture about slavery. Also- lots of alligators and birds. Challenges: If you have a problem climbing stairs, make sure you ask for a room on the low level. Thank you again for such a great two days with a great staff and a beautiful home.

The Good: This was our first trip to Charleston and my wife and I absolutely loved the city. The room was lovely and quiet, and we loved the side porch, especially for having an iced tea on a hot afternoon. We were there just as summer was picking up, so on the cooler days we would walk anywhere, but sometimes after a long day, you took a cab ride back. Very very close to Marion Square and College of Charleston.
The Bad: We had specifically requested one of the rooms with a claw foot tub, but when we arrived they told us we would be staying in another room because they mixed up the schedule. In a regular hotel I wouldn't mind that much, but when I'm staying in a B&B, I'd like to get what I pay for.
The Ugly: As another reviewer has mentioned, Jane the innkeeper reminds them of being in a classroom. I would say she's a lot like somebody's know-it-all aunt who's more concerned with wow-ing people with what she knows than an informed hostess helping people to enjoy their stay. And also as mentioned in another review, she doesn't stop.
"Do you have directions to the beach?"
"Yes, we have directions plus a GPS."
"Yeah, well you need to drive out this way and take a right--"
"Yes, we have directions."
"Ok, but when you get to the bridge..."
At the breakfast table it's impossible to have a conversation without having her jump all over it, answering questions nobody asked. Also, she unknowingly insulted the city where we live, telling other people at the breakfast table that people who live there are idiots and nobody should even bother going there. For the sake of being polite in front of all the fellow travelers, I bit my tongue.
To sum up, I'll be back when she isn't. There are plenty of places where we can spend several hundred dollars a night and fully enjoy ourselves.
This B&B is a charming place to stay, close to downtown. We enjoyed the accomodations, the breakfast, the tea, and the staff. THe parking lot is small, but we parked our car and walked the whole weekend. The bathtubs are the old claw foot tubs. A bit difficult to get in and out of if you are elderly, but otherwise great!
The room was charming! A very comfortable high bed and whimsical decor.
The management were delightful and courteous.they couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome.
the homemade Breakfasts were great.I even bought their cookbook and have used it many times.
I would go back in a minute.
The actual room was decorated very nice but the bathroom was small and the shower was a little scary. The little details you may be looking for from a B&B are not here (robes, soft plush towell, etc.) Breakfast was very good each morning, but be prepared to endure a speech by the innkeeper with it and do NOT get more than one juice. Some of the information, in her speech, can be helpful, but unfortunately she doesn't know when to stop and instead of relaxing over breakfast you feel like you are back in school.
